CEO Climate Dialogue Statement on the Reintroduction of America's Clean Future Fund Act
March 22, 2021
The CEO Climate Dialogue (CCD) released the following statement in response to the reintroduction of the America’s Clean Future Fund Act in the U.S. Senate:
“We are encouraged by the reintroduction of the America’s Clean Future Fund Act by Senator Richard Durbin (D-IL). Our coalition of 22 companies and four leading environmental organizations agrees with Senator Durbin on the urgent need for federal action on climate change. We are united by the recognition that the economic, health, and environmental risks posed by climate change make it one of the greatest global challenges of our time.
“We applaud Senator Durbin’s leadership and attention to this critical issue and look forward to working with him and his colleagues in the Senate and House to advance ambitious bipartisan climate policy this year. The CEO Climate Dialogue sees ambitious climate action to reduce US greenhouse gas emissions in line with achieving net-zero emissions across the economy by 2050 as critical to the long-term health of the U.S. economy. To meet today’s climate challenge, we encourage lawmakers to be deliberate in their work toward climate policy solutions and to prioritize the enactment of market-based solutions that are durable and responsive, maintain the competitiveness of our economy, and promote equity.”
